The Flaming Lips to release 20th anniversary of Clouds Taste Metallic

This month is the 20th anniversary of Clouds Taste Metallic, The Flaming Lips’ seventh album and the last one to include guitarist Ronald Jones. The band is prepping for a deluxe reissue of the LP named Heady Nuggs 20 Years After Clouds Taste Metallic in anticipation.

It is set to be released on November 27th through Warner Bros., and it boasts bonus material such as B-sides and rarities added on to original record. The reissue will be sold as a five-LPbox set or a three-CD bundle.

The reissue has the original Clouds Taste Metallic; a compilation named Due to High Expectations The Flaming Lips Are Providing Needles For Your Balloons; The King Bug Laughs, a number of outtakes and rare tracks; and Psychiatric Explorations of the Fetus with Needles, an unreleased live recording of a Seattle concert circa 1996.
